The following is a list of stocks that have seen a bullish 50-day SMA / 200-day SMA crossover over the last session.

When these two moving averages cross, it often represents a shift in investor sentiment. If the 50-day MA moves above the 200-day MA (bullish), it's called a "Golden Cross" signal.

In addition to the bullish crossover signals, all of these stocks have seen significant institutional inflows over the last 3 months. How far will these investors let these stocks go before taking profits?
